Dr. John Whitcomb: September 28, 2015

Dr. John Whitcomb concludes his message called, “Basic Biblical Answers”—this week on “Encounter God’s Truth.” Host Wayne Shepherd invites you to join those who first listened to this teaching when it was given at Appalachian Bible College in Mount Hope, West Virginia, to demonstrate that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. In drawing on some life lessons he has learned the hard way, Dr. Whitcomb explains the clear Scriptural basis for contending for the faith. He shows how the self-authenticating message of the Word of God and prayer—empowered by Jesus Christ, “the living Word of God”—are the means that we must use when talking with others about our faith. We must never rely on our own limited knowledge or abilities. As Dr. Whitcomb emphasizes, we need to be humble, patient and teachable—leaving the results in God’s hands. Thank you for listening to this latest installment in our series on “Biblical Apologetics.” May the Lord help you as you seek to apply it.
